BD vacancy: Training & Education Manager

We're recruting for a Training & Education Manager as Jo Brown, who's been with BD for an amazing 20 years, is on the move to the South West with her family.  

As a member of the Senior Management Team, the Education & Training Manager is responsible for delivering the range of education and training opportunities for BD members. The post holder will develop, plan and manage all educational activity across BD’s variety of participants, including coaches and judges.

In addition to managing a range of programmes, including UKCC, AASE and judge training and testing, you’ll plan and deliver BD’s major training events, including the National Convention, Judges Convention, Principles of Judging Seminar, Coaches Forum and more.

We’re looking for someone who can bring strong leadership qualities to the role, working closely with all stakeholders and partners to influence strategy and ensure high quality delivery. The post holder must be an excellent communicator and be competent in relationship building at all levels. Confident and articulate, you’ll be an effective ambassador for British Dressage with the ability to multi-task and meet tight deadlines, working equally well autonomously or as part of a team.

The successful candidate will have proven ability of working in a similar environment, with a high level of coaching knowledge and an understanding of supporting voluntary officials. A proven track record in education and training is essential, together with a broad knowledge of equestrian sport, while a good understanding of dressage would be advantageous.

Due to the nature of our sport, a flexible approach to working, including some weekends and evenings, is required. For more information and how to apply, please see the BD vacancies page.  Applications close on 17 March 2017.
